Regular Meeting May 8 and future events list

The presentation for our May 8th meeting is Neil AE1P Goodell’s part 2 on RF Grounding. We are all looking forward to that great information!   For our June 12th meeting we will be sharing Field Day Past & Present, and holding a roundtable discussion of what programs you, our club members want to see, and what direction you would like to see the club go. We are heading into our 60th year and it is all our hope that we have another wonderful 60 years!   Field Day is coming up fast on June 23rd & 24th. We are looking for  a Field Day Chairperson to organize the event and get the paperwork in on time, for an 80m, and a 2m,  Band Captain, and a Food King or Queen to help plan the menu, shop, do food prep, and organize the service.

Steering Committee Minutes for February 27, 2018

CONTOOCOOK VALLEY RADIO CLUB EXECUTIVE BOARD MEETING – 2/27/18 The meeting started at 7:16 pm. Present were: Jeff, VP, Jen, President, Mickie, Treasurer, Steve , Secretary and Dale. Distribution of the updated Flea Market flyer was discussed. Fees: $3.00 for admission, $3.00 for grand prize raffle ticket, and the 50/50 raffle proceeds will go to the Scholarship Fund. The grand prize, a Yaesu FT-60 dual band HT has been picked up along with other handouts from HRO, ready to go. We discussed Field Day, and various alternatives to the standard operation we have always used. The sense was that we may want to reduce our effort in some way. Perhaps 3A rather than 4A or one less tower or something else. No final desions will be made hastily. The meeting adjourned at 8:30 pm. Respectfully Submitted, Steve Jones, CVRC Secretary, N1JHJ (more…)
